Gianne Broughton among panelists on Pints and Politics

On November 6 Gianne Broughton joined Peter Morgan, Tricia Clarkson and Guy Hanchet as a panelist on Trent Radio’s show Pints and Politics.
The panelists explored the most important physical actions our community could take to convert to a low-carbon way of life in response to the looming risk of catastrophic climate.  If Peterborough’s new council asked citizens what actions the City should take, what would we suggest?

First, a BIG THANK YOU to all of our supporters during the 2018 campaign. We made a good showing, and it gives us a good foundation for promoting Green policies through the coming mandate.

With that goal in mind: Membership Matters.

The Green Party is run democratically by its members, including setting policy.

Locally, only members can:

-elect the local candidate and the local executive

-join a campaign management team

-help select the field trips, social and learning events organized by the local executive

The main thing is: when you become a member, your local leadership can easily get in touch with you, and then everything we do becomes so much easier!

Becoming a member is inexpensive and easy. Just follow these links:

Green Party of Ontario:

You can also donate to the local Constituency Association or Electoral District Association through the main party sites.

For the Green Party of Canada:

For Green Party of Ontario:

(If we have 70 people donating $5 per month, we will be ready for a solid Get Out the Vote campaign in Spring 2022.)
